The Ginn Academy Alumni Association Commences

The Cleveland Mentors organization has helped us put together a platform to begin our alumni mentoring program to connect all of our Ginn family so that they can help each other. 2011 graduate, Nick Davis, has taken the lead on creating the organization.

Coach Ginn has long wanted to see graduates of Ginn Academy return to help him guide the next generation. "Mentoring to me is an everyday job," says Coach Ginn. The program will begin with current seniors each being assigned a Ginn graduate as a mentor. Eventually it will be expanded to the younger classes.

No matter where you live or go to school, any graduate of Ginn Academy can be a mentor. That's because mentors and mentees will communicate mainly via regular emails.
